How many?

....have ridden thru a mud silt runoff from logging and rain water? It was wierd because the road underneath was still solid but the slimy silt runoff on top made it really interesting to ride thru. Yes, apparently this is clear cutting in Ohio.

Your a brave soul Buildit. That soup is one of those "only if it has to be done" for me. Would at least want to ride second.

Thanks, don't get to ride the old girl as much as I used to given the additions of a KTM950SE and YZ426. But when it comes to being a tractor that goes thru almost anything it's the bike I want to be on.

Dare I say it, those are times when a 4-wheeler would be nice.

I rode through some of that stuff in Montana/Idaho a couple of weeks ago except it was very dry. It was like flour. When you hit it you plowed through and man was it dusty. The stuff was coming off of the tires like riding through water. And then I fell down in the crap. Took me an hour to clean it out of my modular helmet.

Yeah, took me an hour and a half with the power washer the next day to get it off.
